ARC Music Festival Brings ZHU, Eric Prydz, Adam Beyer + More To Chicago

Set to take place September 4-5, 2021 in Union Park, Chicago, the birthplace of house music will launch the ARC Music Festival, its own house and techno festival.

The inaugural event will be ushered in by a star-studded lineup including Adam Beyer, FISHER, ZHU, Eric Prydz, Meduza, Bob Moses, Hot Since 82, Deborah de Luca, Luciano, Nicole Moudaber and more. The ARC Music Festival is the first to offer all three Eric Prydz aliases in one weekend: Eric Prydz and Cirez D, and a ticketed closing party, headlined by Pryda, that will be held at the Radius in Chicago. The city’s own DJs are expected to hold down some of the stages, with sets from Gene Farris, DJ Heather, Derrick Carter and Hiroko Yamamura on the lineup.

While a number of artists from around the world will be part of, Joe Calderone, director of marketing for a co-presenter of the festival, Auris Presents, says the festival will represent all things Chicago: “We want to make sure that the music festival is really representative of the city… We’re from Chicago, so it’s a festival by Chicago for Chicago. So we want to make sure (that’s reflected in) every aspect, from the culinary, to the sound, to the music production, to experience.”

This star-studded lineup is only the beginning of the festival’s offerings, with more to be announced in the coming months and you can scoop up tickets to this stacked event here.
